Hi, My Name Is David Tolley


I am a double major in both Civil Engineering and Business Management at North Carolina State University. I expect to graduate in the fall of 2018.


There are a few different factors as to why I chose the majors that I did. First of all, my father is an engineer so I was always somewhat drawn to the profession given that I excel in math and science. On the other hand, I was in a business club in high school and always felt comfortable in that field as well. So part due to indecision and part due to thinking ahead, I chose to major in both. By thinking ahead, I mean this; after a few years since one lands a first year engineer job, the company will be looking to promote someone to lead projects and other engineers. This is where the Business Management degree comes into play and will help me advance into higher level positions. Breaking into the higher level engineering jobs in which one manages a team or leads a project is exactly what I intend to do with my degrees.
